" is a slang term for a person who participates in organized crime
, which is known as belonging to "the Mob". In western
stories and movies, cowboys as mobsters are known as outlaws
at times can also be called mobsters as well, since many terrorist organizations
are well-organized. Given that many outlaw biker
groups, such as, the Hells Angels
and the Bandidos
were well-organized as well, they're believed to be part of the Mob also. Therefore, there are three types of mobsters included. People who participate in a riot
or a violent protest
may be, as well, classified as mobsters by some people, even though they are not gangsters or terrorists. This is very likely due to the protesters' destructive behaviors when they protest.
Mobster is a terminology derived from Latin
. The word mobi
means large gathering in Aramaic, and similarly, mob
in Latin means crowd. The full term mobster means member of a crowd.
